Owner description: American Pro Diving Center offers guided Crystal River dive and snorkel Manatee tours for over 18 years in florida. Our snorkel with manatee tours are guided by in water professional divemasters and is just one of the reasons we received many awards from state and local educational systems as well as the National Geographic Dive Center Award from PADI and National Geographic. Experience manatee tours with all the comforts that a five star facility has to offer in Crystal River, Florida.Our trips are successful because the dive masters educate on the manatee and the manners of being in their environment while on the manatee snorkel tours. The guides enter the water with you so that both you and the Manatees have a safe and enjoyable time even if you are new to snorkeling. This can be the experience of a lifetime on our Crystal River manatee snorkel.

Super fun with Cory as our captain. A great morning on the water. I had no fear going in and then felt awkward in my snorkel gear and got a little scared! The manatees are sweet and gentle but are massive and want to be close to you. Took me a while to acclimate to their water environment. Once I... More

Awesome trip! We swam with the manatees and the tour guides were very informative! Loved the whole thing, I'd definitely go back again! Just so you know, Crystal River stays the same temperature all year long so even in the summer, the water is very cold. But once you get used to it, Its a lot of fun!

My family and I went snorkeling with Am. Pro on 11-23-2014. The guides didn't help anyone in the water or out of the water. My eleven year old daughter was struggling to stay at the surface and the guide scolded her for "diving on the manatee". This ruined her trip which ruined my trip. They had one scuba diver on...

We went on the Homosassa tour because we were told it was more private. I have to agree with that. On our boat we had 8 people and the other tour before us had dozens. Short drive and then up the river to meet the manatees. Lots of interactions. Water was not as clear as I expected due to some... More

I went on the combo manatee snorkel and Kings Spring dive tour. The manatee snorkel was fun - we saw a few manatees, though it was still a little early in the season for them. They were good to swim with but he water had poor visibility where we were- none of the crystal clear water that is much hyped.... More

This was a 500 mile round trip to snorkel and dive in Crystal River. The staff at American Pro were excellent from telephone booking right through to bidding us a safe journey at the end of our trip. Our tour guide was great and eventually found a large Manatee for us to get in the water with, what an experience!... More

We had an excellent time with the professionals at American Pro Diving Center. I highly recommend using a Groupon with them though otherwise it could get pretty expensive! Our captain Glen was clearly an expert in the area and was very patient with all of the first time snorkelers on the boat and had a clear passion for diving. He... More

Very good shop and professional crew. Manatee tour seemed to be in a residential canal, not the 'nature preserve' I expected but still a good up close experience. Might have to do with the season though. Combo cavern scuba dive was more of a cave but still fun.

I was traveling with my brother to Key Largo and made a stop in Crystal River to swim with the Manatees. We chose American Pro Dive Center and was happy with our choice. We arrived early to the center but the staff wasted no time getting us checked in and ready for our tour. All of the staff that we... More
